UNITED KINGDOM - A princely marriage not very green

According to a calculation made by the institute Landcare Research, the marriage between Prince William and Kate Middleton, scheduled April 29, will generate 6,765 tons of CO2. This is twelve times the emissions of Buckingham Palace for a year or even 1230 times the annual carbon footprint of an average English household, says the Daily Telegraph.

Much of the carbon come from transport, including air, of the approximately 2,000 guests. The food, although the majority of the season and local, will also have a strong impact on energy expenditure.
